Trail Description
About this trail
The northern two loops (relative to parking lot) are pretty easy, though the northernmost one gets very muddy. Southern loops are more technical, with some nice rock gardens down at the south end. Both sides have lots of shallow stream crossings, facilitated by rocks.

From the parking lot, turn right at the first fork to ride the northern loops, and left at the first fork to ride the southern end. I like keeping right at subsequent forks to do the whole set counterclockwise.

Review: Flowy, lots of berms, great place to carry speed and have a blast chasing friends. Not many technical features, and the ones that are here are all avoidable. If you want to maintain a steady hard pace this is a great place to do it. Super fun!

Review: A super fun trail system that is fun for beginners and experts once you find the flow of the trails. I never get bored here and I come 1-2 times a week through the summer. The trail crew has been doing a FANTASTIC job and this place is getting better and better all the time. Some of the best berm trails in PA. I ride everything counterclockwise except Haycock run. Avoid riding haycock counterclockwise if you can as it can create dangerous situations with people coming down. Well maintained trails. Thank you to the volunteers that make these trails happen!

Review: My favorite place to ride. It can be easy, or if you go a little faster, it can definitely give you a challenge. Many obstacles are optional with easy ways to avoid them. Scenery is great, it's well maintained, but after rain it may take an extra day to totally dry compared to other places. Having said that, even when it's muddy, it's still ride-able. Flat rocks are laid out in spots that collect water etc.. to ensure that and do the trail doesn't wash away. Definitely check this place out especially if you have children or beginners riding with you.

Review: There are many miles of fun, flowy trails here with berms, rollers, and small jumps scattered throughout. Trails are well built with many things mountain bikers like. Easy enough for beginners, but still allows advanced riders to have a good time too. There isn't much elevation gain here which means some trails have severe drainage issues. I rode a solid 48 hours after a rain and a third of the park's trails were still super soft and muddy. Best if ridden at least a week after rain or if the ground is frozen as the place doesn't drain as well as other local parks.

Review: Great trail for beginners to advanced. There are some wood features that are really fun to ride but are completely optional. You can have fun no matter your ability.

Review: awesome trail. not overly challenging. no steep long climbs but really fun turns. theres also a some features like skinnies and log overs. very flowy. theres a short fast rocky section that might be a bit more challenging for some but nothing you would need to walk. also theres a cute "gnome home" thing.

Review: NOX is a well maintained and fun but not overly challenging trail. There is lots of flow. There aren't any long, steep climbs. Some sections on the south end could be considered intermediate with lots of jagged rocks. Overall, NOX is a great time.
